About This Journal
The Intersection of Linguistics, Language & Culture (ILLC) Journal is the first international journal of undergraduate research in Linguistics and Speech-Language-Hearing-Communication Sciences. It is a peer reviewed and open access journal. It is funded by a grant from NSF and the American Rescue Fund of 2021 (grant # 2041294 to Molloy University and CUNY Brooklyn College) and the Office of Health Equity and Outcomes Research Core of the University of Pittsburgh School of health ad Rehabilitation Sciences.
The objective of the journal is to showcase research by undergraduate students in all areas of linguistics and speech-language-hearing-communication sciences. The journal especially prioritizes STEM-based investigations of under-studied languages and cultures, research conducted by members of under-represented ethnic, cultural and linguistic groups, and innovative methodologies designed for varying populations and socio-cultural contexts. Our goal is to empower a new generation of diverse researchers in the fields of linguistics and speech-language-hearing-communication sciences by having them contribute rigorous, high-quality research at an early stage in their academic journey, preparing them for future success in their graduate careers.
